By the way.

Hi,

The Supreme Court was not yet ready to legalize euthanasia, and I imagine that Canada as a country was not yet ready to embrace such a radical idea.

I read this somewhere, and I don't understand why did the writer chose to use was , shouldn't that be is ? Please advice me. The writer is speaking of a time in the past, not of the present time.

By the way.

chose to use correct grammar

chose to used not correct grammar

choose to used not correct grammar

Do they express the same meaning #2 and #3 have no meaning
